Michael Tyler’s “Pierced Tin” Tea Chest/Tissue Box

Post by rtibbs »

Mama wanted a tissue box holder that she couldn't knock off her night stand.
Michael came to the rescue with his POM Pierced Tin Tea Chest.
Sorry Michael but I modified one of your projects, again. :mrgreen:
Made this one with scraps of wood I had lying around. Maple, Cherry & African Walnut.
I mitered and splined the box corners. Made brass hinge pins and cut a recessed oval on the underside of the lid so the tissues would pull out easily. I did maintain his pierced metal look although I had to rearrange things slightly to account for the oval cutout in the top.
Also, instead of cutting the deco then daubing the metallic paint on (Avoiding getting paint into the carvings) I opted to seal and paint the top then carve to deco.

Ron, that’s got to be one of the coolest tissue box dispensers ever! Your modifications are fantastic, functional and beautiful! What a great project - I’m sure your wife is very, very pleased and thankful you made this for her!

Ron that's got to be the best looking pile of scrap that I've seen
in awhile. Really nice execution of the tissue box, and I would
bet that your wife is the only gal on your block that has one.

Had to chuckle as she said she wanted something she couldn’t knock of her nightstand. She picked it up and said “Boy that’s heavy” :D

Mission accomplished with an elegant flair Ron!
THAT certainly shouldn't move around much unintentionally! :)
